Will renters insurance cover lost keys and a change to my front-door lock?

I'm a bit forgetful and have a history of losing my keys. Can I count on renters insurance to cover me if I lose another set of keys in the future?

Generally speaking, no, a typical renters insurance policy will not cover lost keys and a change to your front-door lock. The only time that this would be covered is if the key was taken as a result of theft.
